I agree, in fact this is the kind of posture that I myself
implemented in my actions. 

I have read the article, which was interesting, but am yet to read the
comments. I have a question. What is the size of data? I could not
spot it. If one had read it into one huge byte array, how many bytes
would it be? ESR says he makes a graph of it and there are ~350k
objects - i.e. nodes, I assume? How many edges (arcs, lines) for a
node, on average? on max?

I am curious, as always. Because it is nice of him to rant, but
technical/mathematical side of decision making is still a bit too
foggy for me and I cannot assess it.
